Proper village local's pub with always 4 real ales for sale, always 2 Cotleigh 2 other local brewerys. Yesterday the Cotleigh Nutcracker and Quantock Will's Neck were in a fine condition.

The Bird in Hand seems to have picked up the local trade with the transformation of the nearby and previously popular Lethbridge Arms into an "eating house". Fairly busy on a Sunday Lunchtime with mainly local drinkers but a few diners as well.

Recently started going to the Bird on a fairly regular basis as the friendly owners keep good real ale, offer reasonably-priced cider (where else do you get Thatchers for £2.30 a pint?!) and good pub food - I recommend the ham, egg and chips. Very amenable locals and nice, traditional buildings + huge garden with lawns and veggie patch.‎

A small two roomed pub in a village, one of the rooms has a pool table for those who like to play pool. this was the pub where i had my very first drink(Babycham!!) back in the 50's and we used to go to the dances on a Saturday night in the village hall and a great time was had by all. I was rather surprised that the barmaid serving in the pub remembers me from those days. this is a typical village pub and the beer is ok but no guest ales was found here.if you like Preserved Steam Railways it is only a few minutes walk to Bishop's Lydeard station and you can go as far as Minehead. Regular buses to Taunton will take you to the Mainline Railway Station
